Hereford Community Garden

Hereford Community Garden

Cornerstone Village community garden #1 is established.

Monster thank you to the MotorCity Grounds Crew, Barney, Aaron, Dave, and Ali without whose work
Hereford and Southampton would still non-productive prairie land.

Cornerstone members Cookie, Larry, Sheila, Jim J.and, the picutre taker, Jim G. Local neighbors Doug and Eric also helped and were very glad to see the garden in.

Please take a drive by and check out.

We are now accepting plant donations, seed donations, and, of course, money donations via PayPal see website link. We joined the Greening of Detroit that provides classes, guidance, and some materials for City / community gardens.

The garden is established not planted. This is a work in progress. Cookie planted the onions today. Sheila is bringing tomatoes and peppers to plant. We need a lot of tomatoes. Remember the squash seeds, watermelon, cantaloupe, and pumpkin seeds, too.

We have room for them.

Cornerstone Village wishes happy planting to all.
